This is an article from our previous website which we think should be shared again...
Many charm collectors around the world, including myself, hoped to become the lucky owner of this spectacular Edwardian Risqué Bather charm when came up for auction in April 2012. The beautiful, hand-enamelled details are revealed when the cover of this antique French c.1900 charm is slid aside. The virtual hammer came down at 19 bids and it sold for a whopping US$2,025.00! It was part of Joan Munkacsi's extensive collection of charms and is featured on page 176 in Charms and Charm Bracelets - The Complete Guide Book. The book is authored by Joanne Schwartz and Joan Munkacsi was the technical advisor.
